lyrics

And I miss, when I didn't know who you even were
Before my mother told me, she said this is your dad
Why not let him in?
And even though I shouldn't have
I did, and now I know I won't forget

I found my heart on the floor
For years I've pretended, I forgot who you were
I've been lying to myself because I didn't want to care
And now you're here to show your face again

My father he never believed in me, believed in you, believed in us or this family
And I,
I wonder how it would've been if my mother lied and told me you were dead

I let go of all securities
And I watched you leave this time
I hope it's for good, not like the last
I may finally find closure
I want the door closed but you left it open

You told me it would be alright
I trusted you would leave this time
I just want to live my life
But you created a void
Between father and son
For the rest of my life
Gave you the benefit of the doubt when you didn't deserve it

My father he never believed in me, believed in you, believed in us or this family
And I,
I wonder how it would've been if my mother lied and told me you were dead

I wish that she lied and told me that you were dead
I guess that I thought that I'd never see you again

I let go of my securities
Don't come back
Reset // Replay // Rewind

Don't come back
Reset // Replay // Rewind
